However, he faced a challenge of maximizing his income without further education. He decided to explore bartending as a side job due to its high earning potential and flexible hours.Getting into bartending was tough, with Jesse initially facing rejections from local bars. He started working as nightclub security, finally got a job as a barback, then as a bartender at a busy nightclub, where he saw the power of sales as he earned more in one night than a week at GEICO.Jesse eventually left GEICO and found an opportunity in permit expediting for a gas pipeline project in Baltimore County, MD. This new industry allowed him to combine his sales skills and scalability. A year later, Jesse founded City Permit, expanding its services from serving only DC clients to helping commercial and residential clients across the country. Getting a building permit, whether for residential or commercial projects, can be complicated and time-consuming.

EA512: David Warfel - The Critical Step Most Architects Are Missing from Their Design Process

The Critical Step Most Architects Are Missing from Their Design ProcessDavid Warfel is an overly sensitive, marginally materialistic, pseudo-tree-hugging Midwestern farm boy turned lighting designer. He’s been either lucky, talented, or wealthy enough to land design gigs from New York’s Carnegie Hall to the Las Vegas’ Luxor and MGM Grand casinos, from Chicago’s Hyde Park Arts Center and Museum of Science and Industry to residential and hospitality projects in a dozen states, and from schools and churches to multiple Royal Caribbean cruise ships. Judging from the old Honda in his driveway, it isn’t personal wealth.David finally figured out what to do with his life when he hit his 40’s and bought a foam mattress online. It was so easy to spend thousands without leaving his office that he wondered why you couldn’t get lighting design the same way, so he started Light Can Help You and his team now designs residential and hospitality projects nationwide and beyond.David’s work and writing have been featured in lots of places that no one could find without Google, like Technology Designer, Fine Homebuilding, Designing Lighting, Lighting & Sound America, Lighting Australia, Lighting Design & Application, Live Design, Theatrical Design & Technology, and on Houzz.com but he is usually reading Inspector Gamache novels or writing whatever comes into his head at his blog.This week on EntreArchitect podcast, The Critical Step Most Architects Are Missing from Their Design Process with David Warble.Learn more about David at Light Can Help You and Language of Light, and connect with him on LinkedIn or YouTube.Please visit Our Platform SponsorsDetailed is an original podcast by ARCAT that features architects, engineers, builders, and manufacturers who share their insight and expertise as they highlight some of the most complex, interesting, and oddest building conditions that they have encountered… and the ingenuity it took to solve them.

His comprehensive body of work spans a wide variety of project types and sizes. Informed by his experience working with Herbert Beckhard (a former partner of the Bauhaus master, Marcel Breuer), Matthew subscribes to the philosophy that the strength of any architectural project lies in its unique set of components: Variations in the type, scale, scope, history and budget of a project influence innovation and design elements, thereby generating a uniquely specific response to each design challenge. Matthew believes that architecture is a holistic practice that should be environmentally, socially and financially sustainable. He challenges himself and the firm to consider each project in terms of 'the bigger picture', and to assimilate that understanding into relevant architecture that is an extension of the client's vision paired with the architect's talent. This week on EntreArchitect Podcast, Pushing Beyond the Boundaries of Architecture at Nomi Design with Melody Farris Jackson and Matthew Brooks.Learn more about Melody and Matthew at Nomi Design, or follow them on Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.Please visit Our Platform SponsorsDetailed is an original podcast by ARCAT that features architects, engineers, builders, and manufacturers who share their insight and expertise as they highlight some of the most complex, interesting, and oddest building conditions that they have encountered… and the ingenuity it took to solve them.

EA480: Nick Shiffer - Growing NS Builders with Content and Quality

Growing NS Builders with Content and QualityNick Schiffer started NS Builders in 2014, but his story begins much earlier. Even as a kid, he loved working with his hands—tinkering with a bike, building a mini-empire with Lincoln Logs, figuring out how to put things back together after ripping them apart. At age 11, Nick was already working in his Dad’s fencing business. Attending a vocational school marked a turning point—two classes, in particular, would profoundly impact Nick’s career path. Cabinet making and house carpentry shop fueled his passion for all things construction, and from then on, Nick knew exactly what he wanted to do with his life—build houses. Really amazing houses.After graduating from Fitchburg State University with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Technology/Management, it was time to leave the family business (not an easy decision). Accepting a job in Boston for a&nbsp;big company, Nick soon worked his way up to assistant project manager, completely immersing himself in the various aspects of construction management. Nick wasn’t letting go of his dream—to own his own business—and he worked at night on his own side projects, gaining experience through trial and error, discovering how to juggle multiple jobs effectively, and the financial side of running the show. He held himself and his work to the highest level and refused to settle for less.This week on EntreArchitect Podcast,&nbsp;Growing NS Builders with Content and Quality with Nick Shiffer.Connect with Nick online at&nbsp;NS Builders&nbsp;and&nbsp;Nick Shiffer, and&nbsp;find him on&nbsp;YouTube,&nbsp;Instagram, and&nbsp;LinkedIn.Referenced in this EpisodeContractor Coalition SummitPlease visit Our Platform SponsorsDetailed&nbsp;is an original podcast by ARCAT that features architects, engineers, builders, and manufacturers who share their insight and expertise as they highlight some of the most complex, interesting, and oddest building conditions that they have encountered… and the ingenuity it took to solve them.

EA479: Bill Mandara - Culture Driven Vision with CEO of Mancini Duffy

Culture Driven Vision with CEO of Mancini DuffyWilliam Mandara Jr., AIA, is the chief executive officer and co-owner of Mancini Duffy, a national design firm with a 100+-year-old history and tech-forward approach based in New York City. Bill comes from a family in the business: his father and grandfather were general contractors. He got the most thankless tasks during his teenage summers at his father’s job sites. In retrospect, it was a great way to instill understanding and respect for the profession. It was also a not-so-subtle hint from his father that he should be thinking about architecture school instead.He had been at TSC Design for five years when Mancini Duffy purchased the firm’s assets in 2011, at which point he was named a Senior Associate. He was later named a principal in 2014, became co-owner of the firm in 2017, and was named chief executive officer in 2018.Throughout his career, Bill’s believed in having consistency of vision and values: that we should never put ourselves or our vision ahead of the client’s. This consistency lets us respond to our clients quickly, with clarity and authority.This week on EntreArchitect Podcast,&nbsp;Culture Driven Vision with CEO of Mancini Duffy&nbsp;with Bill Mandara.Connect with Bill online at&nbsp;Mancini Duffy, and&nbsp;find him on&nbsp;LinkedIn.Referenced in this EpisodeEA420: Christian Giordano – Reinventing a 100 Year Old Architecture Firm Through TechnologyEA394: Bolanle Williams-Olley – How To Manage Cash FlowPlease visit Our Platform SponsorsDetailed&nbsp;is an original podcast by ARCAT that features architects, engineers, builders, and manufacturers who share their insight and expertise as they highlight some of the most complex, interesting, and oddest building conditions that they have encountered… and the ingenuity it took to solve them.

A graduate of California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, and Columbia University, he also studied abroad, in Florence, Italy, and at Les Ecoles d&apos;Art Américaines de Fontainebleau.

Founded in 1996 by Brian Messana and Toby O&apos;Rorke in New York City, Messana O&apos;Rorke is renowned for crafting spaces of sublime restraint and ethereal beauty. Their process utilizes a rigorously limited palette of materials orchestrated in an architectural language of distilled boxes, blocks, and containers that emphasize the qualities of space itself rather than the things that fill it. The apparent simplicity and serenity of Messana O&apos;Rorke&apos;s designs belie the astonishing richness and variety of the experiences they nurture.

EA458: Lance Cayko and Alex Gore – How to Hire a Team That Thrives

How to Hire a Team That Thrives Lance Cayko and Alex Gore met during their second year as architecture majors at North Dakota State University. While they didn&apos;t initially hit it off, the two classmates soon realized they each had qualities to complement the other, and by their third year, the go-getters were working together on all the projects they could and earned the title Renaissance Team from Professor Darryl Booker. By the time they graduated, Lance and Alex knew they&apos;d someday run a business together, but first they went their separate ways with Lance landing in Boulder, Colorado, and Alex in New York City. Then the 2008 recession hit. Both junior architects found themselves out of work. Alex returned to NDSU and earned his construction management degree. By 2010, architecture and construction industries across the country were still struggling, so he joined Lance in Colorado, renting the apartment above him, and the two founded F9 Productions. The company has steadily grown as an architecture, construction, and development firm in Longmont, Colorado from the co-founders to a staff of 11. In 2016, Lance and Alex won the Architizer award for Architecture and Living Small popular vote for their tiny home, Atlas, the build of which was featured on season one, episode 14, of HGTV&apos;s Tiny House Big Living. Being business savvy allowed them to earn top ratings, becoming the highest-rated firm for customer satisfaction in Colorado. They&apos;ve also positioned themselves to build their own projects the way they want, including their new business headquarters. Their education at NDSU taught them the balance between the science and art of architecture to enhance lives through design. As they&apos;ve grown the business, Lance and Alex strive to empower the people they hire. They pride themselves on developing employees and growing them into leaders to add to the fabric of professionals in architecture.

EA446: Côme Ménage – Overcoming Obstacles To Grow an Architecture Firm in New York City

Overcoming Obstacles To Grow an Architecture Firm in New York City Côme Ménage is a French multidisciplinary architect based between New York, Miami and Paris. He founded his own practice, re-a.d, in 2017, championing projects that foster an intentional relationship between the individual and the built environment, exploring architecture as a medium for ideation and communion, facilitating growth and community. The work of the firm presents a globalized perspective to the portfolio of commercial, residential and hospitality projects, rooted in environmental stewardship and committed to accessibility. Practicing out of New York City, Ménage found many opportunities to renovate existing structures instead of building anew. As a contemporary practice, re-a.d is constantly evaluating their positioning in relation to past layers of interventions encountered in older buildings. The attempt to appropriately intervene within existing contexts can be seen on historical projects such as the renovation of a historical carriage house in the West Village as well as the renovation of a Greenpoint laundromat turned fine dining restaurant. Recognizing this work, Ménage was invited as a board member of the New York Landmarks Preservation Foundation. This can also be seen through larger projects such as the renovation of a façade proposed on a 500,000 sq.ft. building at 63 Madison Avenue. This project earned the firm runner-up placement in the Metals in Construction Challenge 2020 organized by the Ornamental Steel Institute of New York. Ménage&#8217;s many interests bring richness to the projects at re-a.d. As a Certified Passive House Designer, Ménage brings sustainable thinking to the core of each design and has recently completed a project using a rainwater harvesting structure.  This week at EntreArchitect Podcast, Overcoming Obstacles To Grow an Architecture Firm in New York City with Côme Ménage.

EA424: Katherine Georgeson – Experiencing the Profession from Two Unique Perspectives

Experiencing the Profession from Two Unique Perspectives As a child Katherine knew two things for certain: she would become an architect, and she was not a boy. The path to architecture took her to the University of Wisconsin &#8211; Milwaukee School of Architecture and then into several prestigious midwestern architectural firms. Katherine&apos;s first architectural project was programming and designing the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre Complex. The award-winning project was the result of intense workshops and benchmarking sessions with everyone of MRT&apos;s company members. The project also proved that a non-profit theatre group could be the corner stone of a larger mixed-use development. The principles, of inclusive design and understanding the projects impact on the greater community informed her design process for the Over the next 30+ years. She has remained focused on designing performing arts venues around the country and in 2013 she founded ORCHESTRA Design Studio, to create spaces that encourage social interactions, celebrate our diverse cultural experiences so we can find our common values and transcend our fear of the other. Becoming her true self was a more difficult journey. A major milestone in the journey was coming out at NATEAC 2016&apos;s session on Inclusive Gender Design . She knew that being surrounded by her peers was the best time to leave the closet. Her reward was overwhelming support and encouragement. Given her a newfound confidence, inner peace, and happiness. Since then, USITT, IAVM, AIA, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and several corporations have invited Katherine to present on transgender issues and the importance of supporting LGBT+ rights. She is looking forward to being part of the updated session Design for All Genders &#8211; Inclusive Design for Practitioners and Patrons at NATEAC 2021.

EA420: Christian Giordano – Reinventing a 100 Year Old Architecture Firm Through Technology

Reinventing a 100 Year Old Architecture Firm Through Technology Christian Giordano is the most innovative person in the architecture field today. A visionary who is radically changing the industry through tech-first innovation, he has been highlighted as one of Building Design + Construction&apos;s 40 Under 40 Class of 2013. Driven by a quest of disruption with 25+ years of experience, Christian the Anti-Architect is reimagining the building industry with a progressive approach as president and majority owner of Mancini Duffy, a NYC-based architecture and design firm. Giordano came to the 100-year-old firm with a vision to modernize the company, leaving any idea of a stuffy architecture outpost behind, noted Real Estate Weekly. To redefine Mancini as a top design firm, Christian has sparked industry wide change drawing inspiration from some of the tech-forward companies Mancini works with like Peloton, Disney, Verizon, and Soho House focusing on technology that can propel the world of design forward. Christian saw a unique opportunity to recalibrate Mancini&apos;s approach emphasizing technology to transform the way designers across disciplines work. He launched a research &amp; development incubator dubbed the Design Lab which brings together designers, technologists, and clients to leverage technologies like Virtual Reality, 3D Printing, Drones, Generative Design, and Artificial Intelligence to break barriers limiting design capabilities. What began as an internal incubator, it has quickly grown to disrupt the way the design process is facilitated. In 2020, Christian completely revolutionized the design process as the inventor of the patent-pending The Toolbelt, a software suite that allows users to explore and manipulate 3D models collaboratively to explore and make decisions together. In 2021, Christian launched The Anti-Architect Podcast to share his futurist approach to design and architecture. A critical look at how architects work with their clients and how our clients see us. Christian is a member and board member of the prestigious Young Presidents&apos; Organization (YPO) and also serves on the advisory board of New York Building Congress and Ranney School. He received his Bachelor&apos;s of Architecture from University of Miami and his Masters of Architecture from University of California, Los Angeles where Frank Gehry was his professor. Christian resides in Monmouth County, New Jersey with his family. He owns over 500 bootleg CDs of Bruce Springsteen concerts and is a skilled extreme cake decorator.

EA403: Sky Stephens – Association of Professional Builders

Association of Professional Builders Sky Stephens is the co-founder of the Association of Professional Builders, a business coaching company dedicated to improving the residential construction industry for both builders and consumers. Sky is a firm believer that residential home builders deserve to be earning more money for the service they are providing and that consumers deserve a superior service than they currently receive. The problem is the difficulty of delivering world-class service on tiny margins, or without having the proper systems in place. In order to maximize client experience and overcome these difficulties, the Association of Professional Builders helps builders systemize their building company. The result is an improved client experience which leads to more demand. This allows an increase in margins and ultimately the ability to scale their businesses into desirable building companies that possess real value and can be sold as an asset.

EA401: She Builds Podcast – Stories of the Women Who Built the World

Stories of the Women Who Built the World She Builds Podcast is a podcast featuring the seldom told stories of women who build; women whose worth is not taught in schools, but who have shaped the industries of architecture, construction, and development over the last century. The podcast was started by three friends who, after graduating from architecture school together, wanted to fill in the gaps in their education and share those with others. Jessica Rogers is a Miami native that now resides in Washington D.C, working at the AIA National Headquarters. Jessica attended Design and Architecture Senior High, a magnet art school in the design district of Miami. She earned her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Syracuse University, where she also served as treasurer and historian for her NOMAS chapter. At the AIA, she manages and develops programming and resources for emerging professionals and women in the profession. She is passionate about helping others succeed, elevating the voices of those underrepresented, and creating a more equitable profession. Outside of work, she continues this charge as the co-host of She Builds Podcast, elevating women in the AEC industry through storytelling. Elizabeth Raar (Lizi) is a licensed Project Architect, originally from West Michigan, who graduated from Syracuse University. Currently she works for Polsky Perlstein Architects in Marin County, California on single-family residential projects. She enjoys making a project functional yet beautiful for the client.  Elizabeth is also committed to promoting women in the AEC profession through co-hosting She Builds Podcast . On the podcast, they feature stories of women in history who have shaped the built environment and industry. Elizabeth loves sharing stories of women who haven&apos;t been showcased in the past, in the hopes that women will play a more equal part in future architectural history. Norgerie Rivas is an Architectural Associate from Puerto Rico who graduated from Syracuse University, where she served in the council of the Architecture Students Organization. Today she works for eStudio Architecture in Houston, Texas. There she has worked on commercial, healthcare, aviation, and retail architecture projects from design through construction.  She is passionate about celebrating and elevating women in her field through mentorship and advocacy. This led to her co-founding and co-hosting She Builds Podcast , featuring the stories of women who have shaped the industries of building design and construction through history and today. Norgerie hopes to share the stories of women in the AEC industry and to inspire future, new, and experienced people in the profession.

EA396: George Smart – Saving America’s Modernist Architecture

Saving America&#8217;s Modernist Architecture George Smart&apos;s life changed dramatically after he visited Fallingwater in 2007. That led him to a late night Google search, which became a website, which became a community. Now his small but intrepid nonprofit staff and volunteers have built the largest open digital archives &#8211; free and searchable &#8211; of residential mid-century Modernist design in the world. George is founder and Executive Director of USModernist® and NCModernist®, nonprofit organizations dedicated to the documentation, preservation, and promotion of Modernist design. America&#8217;s mid-century Modernist architects and their original clients are almost all dead; their houses have been sold several times; and the local real estate community would just as soon market teardowns as find new, caring owners. Despite many Modernist houses aging over the 50-year mark, city councils and preservation groups have a hard time considering Modernist houses to be historic &#8211; because 50 years later many still look like the future.

EA384: Lee Skolnick – From Artist to Architect

From Artist to Architect Music and literature. Philosophy and physics. History and math. As a student, Lee Skolnick equally prized and devoured these subjects. This passion for knowledge across disciplines led him to architecture, where they all converge. This interdisciplinary view informs Lee&apos;s approach to every project. He creates narratives that unfold as people move through his designs, all senses engaged. His work can educate and entertain. Convey meaning and emotion. Provoke thought and imagination. Lee achieves this through a keen understanding of how humans make sense of the world and themselves, which is to say, storytelling. He generates a fully integrated architectural experience to transcend a space&apos;s purpose. Since the 1980s, he has been awarded Architectural Digest&apos;s AD100, the Presidential Citation for Outstanding Achievement from The Cooper Union , the Lifetime Achievement Award from AIA Long Island, Honorary Visiting Fellow at the University of Leicester in Great Britain, and his work has won numerous local, state and national AIA Honor Awards.
